Series Info

A young legal shark works in his father's high-powered firm and at a child-advocacy center. But the latter isn't exactly pro-bono work: it's part of a drug sentence. Still, the experience has changed him.

Critics Consensus: The Guardian has a well-meaning premise and a compulsively watchable star in Simon Baker, but the series is limp upon arrival with its bland characterization and rote procedural formula.
